"US Will Feel Tangible Losses," Russia Prepares To Unleash Retaliatory Trade Wars

"It's a troubling continuation/expansion of trade as a geopolitical tool," warns one Washington-based consulting firm as Russia prepares to unleash retaliatory actions to US and European sanctions. As Bloomberg reports, Russia said yesterday it may ban imports of chicken from the U.S. and fruit from Europe and is investigating McDonald's cheese for safety. In addition, a Russian lawmaker has drafted legislation that might result in U.S. accounting firms being barred from doing business in his country. All of this is odd given Jack "trust me" Lew's reassurance that Russian sanctions would have no impact on the US economy. Russia's response, US will feel 'tangible losses' from 'destructive, myopic' sanctions.

As Bloomberg reports, while Russia and the U.S. have long sparred over agricultural trade, the actions fueled speculation they could be retaliatory.

Situation atrocious’: Russian Red Cross says E. Ukraine faces humanitarian catastrophe

The Russian Red Cross is not alone in its efforts. Russian Human Rights Commissioner Ella Pamfilova has been trying to achieve the same goal.

"We have made requests to the Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives who are present there, and to the Red Cross,” Pamfilova told RT. “We ask all warring parties to grant us a humanitarian corridor to rescue children with severe illnesses. In order to leave the shelling zone, they need special transport and specialist medical help.”

Residential areas have come under fire in the east of Ukraine as Kiev’s forces continue their military operation there. Ukrainian troops and anti-government forces have been blaming each other for the civilian casualties.

The town of Gorlovka in the Donetsk Region has for the last several days witnessed massive shelling. Twenty-seven civilians, including 4 children, were killed in the region July 27-29, the city council said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: Poroschenko is enabled and backed by the US/EU/NATO/and the UCB.

He has apparently given his blessing to the firing on refugees, and children.

What monster does this?!?

NY TIMES CITES RUSSIAN TRAITOR AS 'INDEPENDENT' ANALYST

Well, a credible source such as Petrov ought to know, right? After all, according to The Times, Petrov is "independent". (cough, cough), and he works for "world peace" (cough, cough). In reality, Nikolay Petrov is a Yeltsin Era Russian traitor through and through. His Globalist resume includes:

* Chairman of the Moscow Society and Regions Program - a project of the Globalist Carnegie Endowment For International Peace
* Adviser and Analyst for the hated drunken inept President Boris Yeltsin (1994-1995)
* Scholar at the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies (Globalist Think Tank)
* Scholar at the George Soros-funded International Foundation for Electoral Systems
* Putin-hating promoter of 'gay rights' in Russia

MH17 Wreckage Seems to Show It Was Struck with Bullets and a R-60 Air to Air Missile

Russian air control radars apparently registered an unidentified blip suddenly appearing on screen close to flight MH17 at the moment it was apparently hit; this blip later disappeared. Kartopolov insisted the radar signature was a Ukrainian military jet, apparently an Su-25 that could have attacked Flight MH17, using its two R-60 short-range heat seeker “shoot-and-forget air-to-air,” which these military planes are designed to carry for self defense.

According to the chief of staff of the Russian Air Force, Lieutenant-General Igor Markushev, who together with Kartopolov presented the official Russian outline of the MH17 crash, Ukrainian officials deny any of their military aircraft were in air at the time over Donbas, “but you see that is not so,” which is an indication of guilt, he alleged.

Further evidence to support this claim is shown below.

Iraq signs USD 1 billion-arms deal with Russia

Iraqi government has recently signed a USD 1 billion-worth deal with Russian government to provide Iraqi army with heavy artillery, ballistic missile systems and ammunition.

The Russian Interfax News Agency reported Wednesday that the deal was signed during a recent visit by Iraqi Defense Minister Saadoun Al-Dulaimi to Moscow.

It added that the deal also includes, among others things, providing Iraqi army with Grad missiles and armored vehicles.

Talks are also underway to sell Iraq ten Su-27 jet fighters, the report disclosed.

Obama Should Release Ukraine Evidence

U.S.–Russian intensions are building in a precarious way over Ukraine, and we are far from certain that your advisers fully appreciate the danger of escalation. The New York Times and other media outlets are treating sensitive issues in dispute as flat-fact, taking their cue from U.S. government sources.

Twelve days after the shoot-down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, your administration still has issued no coordinated intelligence assessment summarizing what evidence exists to determine who was responsible – much less to convincingly support repeated claims that the plane was downed by a Russian-supplied missile in the hands of Ukrainian separatists.

Permission Dutch Safety Board to move wreckage MH-17

The Dutch Safety Board gave permission to move wreckage on the crash site, after a request about this received by the Safety Board through the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). This in order to be able to salvage the remaining victims. The moving of the wreckage will be carried out by LOCAL PARTIES.
The Dutch Safety Board considers it of the utmost importance that as many victims as possible can be returned to the Netherlands so that they can be identified and returned to their next of kin.

Duma mulls new bill to define and punish ‘aggressor nations’

Lawmakers want to give the Russian government the powers to form and approve a list of ‘aggressor nations’ – countries where authorities introduce sanctions against Russia, its citizens or companies.

Once some country is included in this list, all its citizens, permanent residents and companies registered on its territory automatically lose the right to deliver legal services, business consultancy and financial audits on Russian territory. The Russian government also will be able to lift some of the sanctions or introduce additional restrictions on business activities on such people and companies if such necessity arises.

Fyodorov has told the mass circulation daily Izvestia that the list would definitely include all six major US auditing and consulting companies that work in Russia – Deloitte, KPMG, Ernst and Young, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Boston Consulting and McKinsey.

UN threatens sanctions on anyone trading oil with ISIS terrorists

The UN Security Council has voiced “grave concern” over reports of oil trading with ISIS militant groups in Iraq and Syria. ISIS has seized control of oilfields in the area and is reportedly using the revenues to finance its nascent Islamic State.

Russia submitted a draft statement to the Security Council on Monday night that would ban crude oil sales by terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq, and potentially sanction anyone that does business with them. The measure “strongly condemns any engagement in direct or indirect trade of oil from Syria involving terrorist groups, and reiterates that such engagement constitutes financial support for entities designated by the Security Council 1267/1989 Committee as terrorist."

The statement also calls on all member states to take “necessary measures” to stop “nationals, entities and individuals” from engaging in transactions linked to non-state actors in the oil industry in Syria.

Swedish banks walk tightrope with sanctions

News agency Reuters reports that the EU has agreed on a sanctions package against Russia, over its role in Ukraine, on Tuesday. The details of the sanctions package will be finalized and released on Wednesday. The sanctions target the finance, defence and energy sectors.

The sanctions are initially set to last one year but a review will take place after three months, to judge their effectiveness. The sanctions were decided to only target future contracts, leaving existing contracts intact, like France's delivery of helicopter carrier warships to Russia.

According to Reuters, one of the sanction with the most impact will ban Europeans from buying new bonds or shares issued by banks owned 50 percent or more by the Russian state.

Ukraine's pipelines will lose 50% of value when South Stream starts - Naftogaz head

The South Stream gas pipeline, which bypasses Ukraine, may halve the value of Ukraine’s gas transportation system (GTS), according to Andrey Kobolev, head of Ukraine’s national oil and gas company Naftogaz.

After the Russian–led South Stream project is complete and working at full capacity, the value of Ukraine’s GTS may fall as much 50 percent from the present estimate of $25-$35 billion, RIA Novosti quotes the head of the company.

“We have no wish to lose it, and it’s unreasonable," Kobolev said on a Ukrainian local TV channel.

Construction of the South Stream pipeline in Bulgaria and Serbia was suspended following pressure from the EU to comply with competition law. After a while construction resumed.

"They [Gazprom] are ready to invest their own 15 billion euro in South Stream construction … This gas pipeline will take away from the Ukrainian transit potentially up to 60 billion cubic meters. Currently the transit carries 86 billion cubic meters," Kobolev said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this was the reason the US put tighter sanctions on Russian energy companies; to make South Stream politically unviable for Europe, and force them to use existing pipelines from Ukraine.

Crime (Israel) and punishment (Russia)

So Obama, Merkel, Cameron, Hollande and Italian Premier Matteo Renzi - let's call them the Fab Five - get on a video conference call to muster their courage and "increase pressure" asking for a cease-fire in Gaza. Later in the day, Israel's Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu delivers his answer, in plain language: he remains dead set on achieving his version of a Final Solution to Gaza. [1] With or without "pressure".

So what's left for the Fab Five after having their illustrious Western collective behinds solemnly kicked? They decide to dump Gaza and instead sanction Russia - again! How brilliant is that as an exit strategy?

U.S., EU hit Russia with more sanctions as Ukraine fighting continues

Russia became more isolated Tuesday than it has been at any time since the end of the Cold War after new, hard-hitting sanctions were announced by the European Union and the United States, U.S. officials said.

U.S. President Barack Obama said the measures would take an "even bigger bite" out of the stagnant Russian economy than sanctions Washington and the EU had already implemented against Russia over its disputed annexation of Crimea and its support of pro-Russian rebels fighting the Ukrainian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the editors of cnn.com: CAN YOU POSSIBLY, PLEASE, QUIT LYING ABOUT THE SITUATION WITH UKRAINE?!?!?

Let's look at the timeline here:

1.The duly elected government of Ukraine was dumped in a putsch.
2.Crimea, in a free and fair election, and with international observers present, chose to allign itself with Russia in light of the fact that Ukraine no longer had a legitimate government.
3.The US/EU/UCB-enabled Portoschenko was "elected" as president in an election so completely crooked that all officials participating in it had to screw their socks on.
4.Russia has done absolutely nothing wrong. They have also taken in children and women who are fleeing from the bloodbath which Portoschenko has ordered for those Eastern Ukrainian areas which want to be separate, adn more independent from Ukraine.

And of course, God forbid that you should mention the real reason for these sanctions, which are generally a prelude to war; money, and whose currency wil be supreme in world trade in the future.

The ruble and yuan are gathering momentum as the currency of choice, and that is the real reason for these sanctions; to prevent these currencies from rising any more than they already have, in terms of countries not wanting to use the dollar anymore as an intermediary currency.

And the US government will literally go to war rather than have that happen.

Russia bans Polish fruit and vegetable in apparent retaliation for sanctions

Russia announced a ban on most fruit and vegetable imports from Poland on Wednesday and said it may extend the restrictions to the rest of the European Union, its first apparent retaliation to new Western sanctions imposed over Ukraine a day earlier.

Moscow, which buys more than 2 billion euros worth of EU fruit and vegetables a year making it by far the biggest export market for the products, said the ban was for sanitary reasons.

Polish fruit growers said the ban was political, although Russia denied this. Moscow has frequently been accused in the past of using sanitary inspections to restrict trade from countries with which it has political disputes. The EU said it was studying the announcement, describing it as a surprise.

EU and US impose sweeping economic sanctions on Russia

EU governments have agreed to impose sweeping sanctions on Russia, targeting state-owned banks, imposing an arms embargo and restricting sales of sensitive technology and the export of equipment for the country's oil industry, in response to Moscow's continued backing for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The punitive measures, the most extensive EU sanctions imposed on Russia since the cold war, were agreed by ambassadors from the 28 member states after a seven-hour debate. They decided that Moscow had not fulfilled the conditions laid down by foreign ministers last week, to stop the supply of arms to the rebels and provide full cooperation in the investigation into the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

He added that one of the passengers has been severely wounded. The bus carried mostly women and the residents of Ukraine’s eastern regions seeking to flee from the region’s conflict.

The MH17 downing was engineered to move the EU and public consensus in the direction of open confrontation with Russia. The EU does not want to appear indifferent and lackadaisical to the exploitatively propagandized tragedy, so it will lend its support for a new round of sanctions and, most importantly, the neocon introduced Senate bill 2277, the so-called “Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014” more appropriately dubbed the World War III bill.

China, Japan and Russia zero in on Latin America

The leaders of China, Russia and Japan all descended on Latin America in recent weeks, jostling with the United States to increase their influence, invest and tap into resource-rich markets.

The latest arrival was Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who on Monday was in Trinidad and Tobago, the second stop on a five-country tour that began on Friday in Mexico.

Abe’s visit began just as Chinese President Xi Jinping wrapped up his tour, which included stops in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba. Xi signed more than 100 trade agreements on the trip.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was in the region for a week from July 11, stopping in Argentina, Brazil, Nicaragua and Cuba.

The United States remains Latin America’s top trade partner, but gone are the days when Washington could take the region for granted as its backyard.

Exposed - U.S. Diplomat Behind Artillery Satellite Images was Involved in the Toppling of Yanukovich

It turns out that the man the U.S. State Department chose to handle the the latest phase of Russia demonization played an integral role in the toppling of the Ukrainian government.

Geoffrey Pyatt was the man on the other end of the now infamous leaked Victoria Nuland call. That was the call in which the U.S. State Department got caught red handed discussing who they were going to install in the Ukrainian government after the fall of Yanukovich. If you haven't listened to that call, you should. It was very revealing.

Oh, by the way, you probably heard of this audio clip back when it was first released. The main stream media put all attention on the fact that Victoria Nuland said "Fuck the E.U." Apparently these "journalists" consider her potty mouth to be more important than the fact that the U.S. State Department was caught red handed installing a puppet government.

Webmaster's Commentary:

U.S. Promises “Robust Retaliation” for Alleged Russian Troop Deployment on Ukrainian Border

Earlier in the week senior U.S. intelligence officials admitted they have no direct evidence Russia or the separatists shot down the Malaysian airliner.

“Rather than backing down after last week’s downing of a civilian passenger jet, Russia appears to be intervening more aggressively in the war in eastern Ukraine,” The New York Times reports.

Officials say the unconfirmed move represents “a dangerous escalation that will almost certainly force more robust retaliation from the United States and Europe.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US current propaganda is, "We think Russia might be planning to send troops into Ukraine, so we have to go ahead and send ours in. Just in case, you know. Because we don;t want to be caught by surprise. Right? Right? Right? Right? Right? Right?"

IMF warns of adverse effects of anti-Russia sanctions

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned that the sanctions imposed on Russia over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine would have adverse effects on a global scale.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, IMF spokesman William Murray said that the potential global impacts of the anti-Russia sanctions are “still under assessment, but clearly you would anticipate - through trade channels - that there would be an impact.”

Murray also emphasized that the sanctions are expected to affect the economies “that have very active and direct trade links with Russia, particularly in eastern and central Europe and central Asia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sanctions are most generally a prelude to war, and that is the scary part here.

And even more scary is the reality that the US government doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia, meaning such a war may well go nuclear in a heartbeat.

The original BBC Video Report was published by BBC Russian Service on July 23, 2014.

In a bitter irony, The BBC is censoring its own news productions.

Why did BBC delete this report by Olga Ivshina?

Is it because the BBC team was unable to find any evidence that a rocket was launched in the area that the Ukrainian Security Service (“SBU”) alleges to be the place from which the Novorossiya Militia launched a “BUK” missile?

Or is it because every eyewitness interviewed by the BBC team specifically indicated the presence of a Ukrainian military aircraft right beside the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17 at the time that it was shot down?

Grandstanding over MH17 punishes us more than Putin Sanctions on Russia after the downlng of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 will be ineffective and end up damaging the City of London

The European Union and America are about to impose new sanctions on Russia following the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner with almost 300 people on board. A deal brokered by telephone was being finalised last night and will principally target the financial, defence and energy sectors.

However, as we have observed before, this exercise seems largely designed to damage the City of London, while enabling other EU countries to carry on with the essentials of their relationship with Moscow largely intact. The deal under which France is building two warships for Russia will go ahead, for instance; and while existing financial contracts are to be honoured, London’s institutions will inevitably take a bigger hit than anywhere else.

European Union ambassadors will meet in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss the new sanctions, which Downing Street admitted could cause "pain" for the City of London.

The new sanctions, which have a broad consensus across the EU, are likely to target Russian financial institutions, arms deals and energy exploration technology and could be imposed within "12-48 hours".

The basic structural problem is that America is no longer a viable hegemon. It’s been visibly in geopolitical decline for quite some time now and American politicians and policy makers are utterly incapable of coping with this fact. Most of them can’t even accept it let alone handle it competently by minimising American losses. So they keep on flailing about trying do the impossible which is to restore the status quo ante and repair the irreparable. American hegemony or “leadership” to use the term American politicians and policy makers prefer is over.

False Flag? Fake Video of Alleged Pro-Russian Militia Claiming Responsibility for MH 17 Attack Was Made Before Plane Crash

This could almost be a smoking gun of the false flag attack with respect to MH 17. Some five hours after the loss of MH 17, the Ukrainian Security Service published a recording of alleged pro-Russian military officers led by commander Bes, who is based in Gorlovka (Horlivka), allegedly confirming that they shot down the Malaysian Boeing 777.

'Fake': Russian Defence Min rebuffs US sat image claims

Russia’s Defense Ministry has stated that “fake” satellite images of alleged shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory were created by US counselors “with close links to Ukraine’s Security Council.”

The authenticity of the images is impossible to prove, the ministry added.

The Defense Ministry stated that the images posted by the US ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt on his Twitter account, allegedly proving the shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory, are “fake,” ITAR-TASS reports.

“These materials were posted to Twitter not by accident, as their authenticity is impossible to prove – due to the absence of the attribution to the exact area, and an extremely low resolution. Let alone using them as ‘photographic evidence’,” Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the ministry, stated.

UPDATE of the Latest US Government Hoax — Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian Ministry of Defense has declared the purported satellite photos placed on Twitter by the US Ambassador in Ukraine as fakes.

I could tell that the images were fakes not only from their low resolution and absence of proper designation, but also from the unprofessional way in which the information was released.

Of course, many users of social media would have no experience and could easily fall for the hoax, which was clearly the US government’s intention.

MH17 jet 'downed by missile shrapnel,' says Ukraine

25 Recent Events in Ukraine the U.S. Wants You To Forget

Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.

I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”.

In fact, they want in on the action. The Pentagon began wargaming this week with the regime in Ukraine on how best to kill pesky citizens in Eastern Ukraine who oppose the U.S. Vice President’s son stealing and fracking shale gas on their land.

People who defend their land and families are called “terrorists” when imperial powers want their resources. In turn, Western rulers call violent coups “duly elected” if they pledge allegiance to the IMF.

Washington threatens to intervene in east Ukraine fighting

In a reckless maneuver posing the risk of direct clashes between the United States and Russia, Washington is moving to escalate the civil war in east Ukraine by directly involving US forces in the targeting of Russian-backed separatist groups.

The Pentagon and the CIA have drawn up plans for providing “real time” information on the location of missile batteries or other targets controlled by pro-Russian forces. While the White House has yet to announce a decision on the precise course of action it will follow, the plans to escalate US involvement are strongly supported by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Ukraine's use of unguided rockets in civilian areas of Donetsk 'may be war crimes'

Human Rights Watch has gathered evidence in the war zones of Eastern Ukraine which show that Ukrainian government forces have violated the laws of war by using 'notoriously imprecise' rockets in civilian areas, destroying homes, killing and injuring non-combatants.

Unguided Grad rockets launched apparently by Ukrainian government forces and pro-government militias have killed at least 16 civilians and wounded many more in insurgent-controlled areas of Donetsk and its suburbs in at least four attacks between July 12 and 21, 2014, according to Human Rights Watch.

The use of indiscriminate rockets in populated areas violates international humanitarian law, or the laws of war, and may amount to war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, YA THINK?!?!?

What SHOULD have been resolved through honest, hard negotiations between the separatist rebels and Kiev is now, courtesy of Poroschenko and his US/EU enablers, being resolved by a bloodbath.

Every day, innocent kids, women, and the medically fragile elderly are being slaughtered and maimed for life, because Poroschenko refuses to negotiate.

The pictures of this carnage you see at WRH are NOT BEING SHOWN by the corporate presstitutes, because they do not want the public to see how horrifically barbaric this slaughter is.

Intl. teams find ‘no violations’ by Russia along Ukrainian border

Inspectors who came to check the state of Russian troops along the Ukrainian borders have found no violations, Russia’s Ministry of Defense said. This came as a response to the US alleging 15,000 Russian troops have amassed in the area.

“It has come to our attention that new allegations by top US officials as to the alleged amassing of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border have been voiced,” the statement by the Defense Ministry read, following allegations by the US Permanent Representative to NATO, Douglas Lute, and State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf.

“The last four months have witnessed 18 separate inspections along the Ukrainian border with the Russian Federation, all in line with the Vienna Open Skies Treaty and the Vienna agreement of 2011.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By now, both thinking Americans and the world expect the US government to lie,to forward its geopolitical agenda, and the corporate presstitutes to regurgitate precisely the same lies to the world.

The problem is that this government has destroyed its credibility so completely, that even if, for a a moment, they actually told the truth about anything, no one would believe them.

Live updates on the Kiev's bloody campaign in the east

The report also states that these are the minimum casualty toll estimates by the UN monitoring mission and WHO.

The report says that the cause of the rising death toll is intensified artillery shelling of the civilian residential areas and the so-called “collateral damage” of the armed actions in the heavily-populated areas.

Also, 100,000 people were forcibly displaced in eastern Ukraine.

No BBC Video Removal Scandal After All; Evidence of Military Planes Shadowing MH17 Mounts

My initial reaction was that Leder's response was disingenuous.

However, the BBC has since re-posted the video.

Europe finally set to get tough with 'erratic' Putin

With Vladimir Putin's behaviour growing increasingly unpredictable and fighting escalating in the eastern Ukraine, Europe is now poised for a step-change in the level of its economic sanctions against Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on the Telegraph for such blatant pro-war propaganda!

This situation in Ukraine was started back in January when Ukraine's elected government rejected an offer to join the EU and decided to accept a far better offer from the Russian Republics. One need only look at the economic fate of the current EU members under their privately-owned central bank to see why that was a wise decision. But both the EU and the US saw Ukraine's alignment with Russia as accelerating the rise of the Ruble, which is a threat to both the Euro and the US Dollar in international trade and banking. So covert activists were sent into Kiev to stage protests, riots, sniper attacks, and drive the elected government from power by force, as the US has done more than twenty times since the end of WW2, with Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973 some of the better known examples. Crimea and eastern Ukraine do not want to be part of the European Union, do not want to live their lives as debt-slaves to the ECB, and voted for independence, as they have a right to do under the UN Charter, which grants all people the right to self-determination. But the US and EU don't like the idea of citizens of an overthrown government deciding they want nothing to do with that government they did not elect, and which is taking Ukraine in a direction they do not approve of, and armed the Junta in Kiev with weapons to make war on their own people.

But the plan to conquer the Ukrainian people and bring them back into the EU slave-pen has foundered. Kiev is broke. The Junta's coalition collapsed last week. This attempted overthrow of Ukraine has turned into a disaster and now the EU and US are looking to shift the blame onto Putin, who has done nothing at all during this crisis except accept Crimea's request to join the Russian Republics. The US and EU have dusted off the Iraq playbook and started to try to lie us all into yet another war, and it is worth recalling that the Telegraph worked hand in glove with the government insisting that Saddam had nuclear weapons.

Fool me once...

I am not surprised the Telegraph is not allowing comments on this article.

US releases satellite images 'proving' Russia is firing into Ukraine

The US State Department has released satellite images via email which it says act as “evidence” that Russia is firing rockets at Ukrainian troops across the border. The images were posted on Twitter by the US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt.

The four-page emailed document, titled 'Evidence of Russian Shelling into Ukraine,' contains four satellite images, all dating between July 21 and July 25/26.

Monochrome images taken by civilian satellites are said to be indicating fire from multiple rocket launchers “on the Russian side of the border” and “artillery strikes within Ukraine.”

The slides were prepared by the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and came supplied with a short description. Thus, a slide dated July 25/26 shows what US officials claim to be “ground scarring at a multiple rocket launch site on the Russian side of the border oriented in the direction of Ukrainian military units within Ukraine.”

Meanwhile, the Russian military command has furnished European Union officials in Brussels with a dossier of its own evidence, based on satellite, radar and air traffic control communications that tend to show a completely different set of circumstances over the downing of the airliner. Russia’s information, which is verifiable unlike Washington’s with-held «secret intelligence», strongly suggests that Malaysia Airlines MH17 was taken down by Western-backed Ukrainian military forces under the command of the Kiev regime.

On the parlous state of the (Canadian) prime ministerial belfry: batty, or what?

I don't know about you, but I always took a certain comfort in the notion Harper was a cynical master of manipulation, a politician for whom no wedge was too harmful or divisive to be shunned. This is bad, of course, and both immoral and dangerous, but it contains the comforting kernel of thought that no one as bright as Harper is could actually fail to see the glaring contradictions in the stuff he says. This always offered the faint hope he didn't actually believe everything he was saying, and therefore might be philosophical if voters indicated they disagreed.

Naturally one hoped his petulant and furious reaction to the complicated situation unfolding in Ukraine reflected only the availability of another potential wedge issue here in Canada. That is, a chance to capture the Ukrainian-Canadian vote. Perhaps, one hoped, it didn't reveal his actual thoughts on the unstable and dangerous crisis in which there are plenty of nasty players and victims on all sides.

However, after reading Harper's little magnum opus about how Putin is all bad, and the current Ukrainian government -- neo-Nazi enforcers, foreign fascist mercenaries, the illegal coup that brought it to power and everything else -- is nothing but good, I'm not so sure.

BBC Russia accidentally aired a truthful report about HM17


BBC Russia accidentally aired a truthful report about the HM17 crash, they have since deleted it. The problem with the report was that local people told they they had seen two fighter jets with the Malaysian Airline Boeing 777 MH17 and that it was one of these fighter jets that shot the HM17 down. Before they deleted it it was saved by watchful internet users and have now been uploaded many times to internet. Just like they did with the video were they claimed that the Salomon building (WTC7) had collapsed 20 minutes before it actually happened. That video have also been deleted from BBC's archives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BBC Russia's coverage of Malaysian Flight 17 found numerous witnesses saying that the 777 was shot down by Kiev warplanes seen following the passenger jet (tracked on Russian radar and according to "Carlos", the Spanish air traffic controller, seen on ATC radar as well).

BBC has now "orwellized" this report, much as they did the raw footage showing the BBC report on the collapse of WTC Building 7, twenty six minutes before it actually happened!

From Boeing to banking: how Russian sanctions will hit western business

Tightening the economic screws will hurt Russia's economy, but the consequences will also be felt by western companies – and not just the usual suspects of energy and arms companies that have made high-profile deals with the Kremlin. Germany, for example, has 6,000 companies doing business in Russia, mostly small and medium-sized enterprises. But large conglomerates will be the bellwethers, showing how serious the consequences will be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At a time when both the US and EU economies are already fragile, the promoters of war against the Ruble (and the Yuan) are willing to inflict even more hardship and suffering on their own people.

Who is the real enemy?

It isn't Russia and it isn't China.

The common enemy of all mankind are private central banks issuing all of the public currency as a loan at interest, a system that by design leads to massive debt, enslavement, and world wars.

Russia Media Allege Flight MH17 Shot Down by Ukraine Missile Unit. Political Disarray Following Collapse of Kiev Government

Two SU-25 fighter jets from the airbase of the 229th Brigade of the Kulbakino tactical force in Nikolayev reportedly served as control targets. One of these aircraft had been recorded near Sarostschenskoje by a Buk anti-aircraft missile system.

“The tragic accident could have led to the flight route of the Malaysian Boeing and the SU-25, which were at different altitudes, crossing and appearing on the radar display as one large point, which was fatal for the civilian plane, because the targeting system would automatically choose the larger target,” the source told Ria Novosti.

A rocket launch was reportedly not scheduled. Why a rocket was nevertheless fired, the source could not explain. “This is the question facing Ukrainian Security Service staff, who picked up the battery commander and crew at about half past nine in the evening,” he said.

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worse.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported.If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Barack Obama banned from entering Chechnya • Chechen president cites US and EU 'state terrorism'

Although Russia has not responded to US sanctions over the Ukraine crisis by putting a travel ban on President Barack Obama, there is one part of the country he is now barred from entering: Chechnya.

On Saturday Ramzan Kadyrov, the president of the small Russian republic that has been the scene of two devastating separatist wars in the past 20 years, said he was placing Obama on a list of people banned from visiting.

The list also includes European Union figures José Manuel Barroso, Herbert van Rompuy and Catherine Ashton.

Kadyrov, wrote on his Instagram account that the ban was in response to US and EU actions in Ukraine, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, which he called "state terrorism”.

On Saturday, the Russian foreign ministry released a strongly worded statement blaming the US, in part, for the Ukraine crisis.

Intelligence Insider on Ukraine: The Other Road to World War III

Readers who followed my many reports exposing the truth about the September 11, 2012 attack of the CIA compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans have witnessed the painfully slow process of that truth gradually evolving into the mainstream, validating my information and source. From beginning to end, the West, and particularly Americans, were lied to about nearly every aspect of our involvement in Libya, Syria and the entirety of the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East. These lies were deliberately advanced by a captured corporate media adherent to the same ideological bias as the Renegade-in-Chief and his staff of co-conspirators, combined with colluding pseudo-Conservative Republicans in Congress and their sycophants in the media to keep the truth from the American public. - See more at: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/intelligence-insider-on-ukraine-the-oth...

Bloomberg Lies as Ukrainian Rebels Allegedly Down 2 Warplanes

In Bloomberg's article, "Two Ukrainian Jets Shot Down, Three Dangerous Explanations," it claims two Ukrainian SU-25 ground attack warplanes were shot down by rebels over Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, stating:

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman told reporters in Kiev that two of its Sukhoi SU-25 fighter jets were shot down while flying at 5,200 meters (17,000 feet) over the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine. The pilots ejected, and their whereabouts are unknown.

At 17,000 feet, the planes would have been outside the range of the shoulder-fired missiles that the rebels contend are their only air-defense weapons. The planes would, however, be in range of a surface-to-air missile such as the Buk, which is suspected to have been used to shoot down Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 on July 17.

Gen. Dempsey: We're Pulling Out Our Cold War Military Plans over Ukraine

Hours after the U.S. State Department on Thursday claimed (though failed to describe) new evidence that Russia's military was both increasing the flow of arms to rebel fighters in eastern Ukraine and firing artillery at Ukrainian Army positions across its border, Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey elevated the rhetoric against Russian President Vladimir Putin and directly invoked the idea that a new Cold War-like posture is now being taken by the U.S. military.

Speaking from the Aspen Security Forum, a defense industry conference in Colorado, Dempsey said Pentagon planners are now looking at military options “we haven’t had to look at for 20 years" and warned that Putin—whom he characterized as escalating the crisis inside Ukraine—“may actually light a fire” he cannot control. And not just in Ukraine or eastern Europe, Dempsey said, but globally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Joint Chiefs of Staff General Dempsey: sir, forgive me, but in the eyes of history, this is going to prove to be your "yellowcake uranium moment", as when Colin Powell addressed the UN with the accusation that Saddam Hussein was creating weapons of mass destruction.

And since that moment, sir, I have never, ever been able to take anything this government says, no matter which political party is in charge, seriously. In fact, the US government, at this point in its history (dare we say, devolution?!?) is simply a collection of individuals who take the money of large corporations which fund election cycles, and keep them happy. We the People?!? Completely expendable and useless, thank you very much.

And I am sure that the military industrial complex is salivating over these statements, and looking for large amounts of cash to flow to them.

Yes, I know the agenda here; to prevent the rise of the ruble and the yuan against a failing US dollar, even if it takes another horrific world war to make that happen. Many countries already have direct monetary exchange with Russia and China, already bypassing the dollar completely.

But General, I would like to politely remind you that the US doesn't have the money, the troop strength, and God knows, not the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia and/or China, and this is what makes a military strike option so scarily dangerous.

So sir, I would strongly caution you, and those around you, to be very, very careful about what you wish for: the unintended consequences of a nuclear war could be both catastrophic...and irreversible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video for three reasons. First, this is a message that needs to get out to the world about how everyone loses in war except the bankers.

Second, the new readers coming in from my return to GCN might wish to hear the whole song (which is heard briefly in the bump music) and see the video

Third, the latest revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.

Samantha Power And The Age Of Genocide; Rwanda 1994 vs Gaza 2014

America has once again exercised its political clout in favor of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity; its voice the lone one to vote against a call to investigation by UN Human Rights Council into the Israeli offensive’s violations of international laws. Power and her bosses give their full support to Israel’s continued crimes against humanity and genocide.

Twenty years after Rwanda, the Genocide in Gaza is ignored. Samantha Power has either lost all memory, or she has lost all humanity –but without a doubt, she is completely void of integrity, and complicit in the crimes against Palestinians.

Two decades later, again, prior to November elections, the US is careful to avoid the “G” word. As Israeli law makers call for genocide and indiscriminate killing of Palestinians under siege

A system mix up during a Ukrainian air defense units’ rocket launch exercise could be the cause of the Malaysia Airlines crash in southeast Ukraine, a source from one of the Ukrainian defense departments told RIA Novosti.

“On July 17 the commanding officer of 156th Anti-Aircraft Regiment was instructed to conduct a training exercise of ground troops stationed near Donetsk, which involved deploying the troops, and carrying out a routine tracking and destroying of targets with the Buk-M1 missile,” the source said.

The source added that the actual launch of the rockets was not intended.

The Catastrophe of #MH17: #BBC in the Search of the “#BUK” – The Video Report Deleted by @BBC

The original BBC Video Report was published by BBC Russian Service on July 23, 2014. Why did BBC delete this report by Olga Ivshina? Is it because the BBC team was unable to find any evidence that a rocket was launched in the area that the Ukrainian Security Service (“SBU”) alleges to be the place from which the Novorossiya Militia launched a “BUK” missile?

Or is it because every eyewitness interviewed by the BBC team specifically indicated the presence of Ukrainian military aircraft right beside the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17 at the time that it was shot down?

Or is it because of eyewitness accounts (like the one posted following the transcript of the BBC report) confirming that the Ukrainian air force regularly used civilian aircraft flying over Novorossiya as human shields to protect its military aircraft conducting strikes against civilian population from the Militia’s anti-aircraft units?

In this report, we will lay out the facts based on a wide breadth of available information and data surrounding MH17.

Our objective is to get as close to the truth as possible. Although many revelations will appear to be self-evident, we still encourage the public to draw their own conclusions regarding this pivotal event.

MORE WAR BEX - Putin ups stakes in Ukraine, to ship more sophisticated weaponry to separatists

The Pentagon says it has intelligence indicating Russia is poised to deliver sophisticated multiple-launch rocket systems to its Ukraine-based supporters — a transaction that could happen Friday.

Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren said Friday that Russia has so far delivered to Ukraine tanks, artillery and rocket systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Along with some of Saddam's nuclear weapons!"

Note that this article does not say Russia has sent any such weapons, only that the Pentagon claims they know Russia will.

But look at this from Russia's point of view. Any overt military move by them opens the door t the war the US wants to protect the weakening US dollar's role as the global banking and trade currency against the rising Ruble (and the Rising Yuan, which is why war with China is being planned as well).

The Junta in Kiev has collapsed. Poroshenko is out of money to supply his troops, let alone pay them. Putin knows that the only way Poroshenko can save himself and the Junta is to get the US directly involved, which is why Putin won;t make a move (and why we are seeing this flood of easily discredited propaganda screaming "The Russians are coming" all over the corporate media).

All Putin has to do is sit and do nothing and the Kiev Junta will crumble.

Mossad Mercenaries Believed Responsible for Ukraine Massacre

In mid-June, a battle raged for the port city of Mariupol, Ukraine. A new militia force launched an offensive against about 250 Russian militiamen loyal to the Donetsk People’s Republic, which had seized the city from the Ukrainian government. The battle focused on a police station held by the separatists in which both armed militants and unarmed civilians had gathered to demand reunion with Russia. The conflict ended cruelly, as the station was burned to the ground with scores of women and children inside. Those fleeing the inferno were machine-gunned.

The massacre was the work of the Dnipro Battalion, a new force of mostly foreign mercenaries drawn from Zionist-backed terrorists around the world and financed by Ihor Valeriyovych Kolomoyskyi, a Jewish billionaire and banker.

BEX ALERT - Shelling Ukraine with GRAD from Russia! Village Gukovo, Rostov Oblast.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boy, the warhawks are not going to quit. Here we have a video with an added voice over which the corporate media is claiming proves Russia is firing into Ukraine with rockets. But of course the video itself does not show who is launching the rockets or where they are located, but it DOES show the direction the video was taken from looking at the gradient in the sky, which clearly shows the video is looking southwest at the launcher, which means the rockets are flying to the EAST! The GRAD is an unguided missile, fired in volleys over a wide area, similar to the American MLRS. Ukraine has been importing the GRAD from Russia (like the BUK) which means even if this was confirmed as a GRAD launcher, that does not mean that it is not KIEV using it. After all, with a maximum range of 35 Kilometers, GRAD's fired from Russia can only reach into the independent Republics, and why would Putin do that?

The piece of legislation, which has already been seen in congressional committee, intends to effectively declare war on Russia by imposing even more draconian sanctions on Russian businesses, and individuals, maintaining American troops in European countries, increasing the presence of American troops and military equipment in countries that support NATO’s actions against Russia, including former Soviet republics, forcing Ukraine to become a member of NATO so the United States can station troops and armament on the Russian-Ukrainian border and cancel any nuclear disarmament treaties signed between the United States and Russia, among other things.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.
